From Booklist:

K-Gr. 3. In the latest Time-Traveling Twins book, Liz and Lenny accompany their grandmother to Plymouth Plantation in 1621. They live in a small, crowded house; do chores; work in the fields; attend worship services, of course; and sit down to a feast with the colonists and Wampanoag. When Liz refers to it as "the first Thanksgiving," she is quickly corrected by a Plymouth boy, who explains that it's just a harvest festival like the ones back in England. This exchange, along with Grandmother's explanation of what the settlement's first "true Day of Thanksgiving" entailed, show Stanley's fine approach. The traditional version, often seen at school pageants, seems stale and dull compared with this fresh, engaging presentation of what life in Plymouth was and was not. An author's note explains how the feast became popularly known as "the first Thanksgiving" and why that label is inaccurate. Bustling with activity, warmed with color, and full of period details, Berry's attractive illustrations light up the pages of this appealing and engaging volume. Carolyn Phelan
